Abstract
The article considers the questions of regional development in Russia. It is shown, that the increase in regional differentiation for the last few years of economic growth (2000–2005) is promoted only by several regions. In the most part of “economic space” the stratification is not observed anyway. Rather a specific (local) regional polarization takes place. Within the framework of convergence model, it is shown, that if the tendency to approchement generated in the considered period in the most Russian regions continues, a distance between some average meaning GRP per capita in 2005 and steady-state value will be reduced by 1.5 times in the recent 20–25 years, and by 2 times in 40 years approximately. According to the accounts, differentiation in long-term perspective still remains large enough; the distribution of GRP per capita amasses remains below the average.
